Dan Out February 28th, 2002 @ 12:23 pm PDT
Dan Duquette was fired Thursday as general manager of the Boston Red Sox, less than 24 hours after the historic, hard-luck franchise was bought by new owners. In his eight-year tenure, Duquette grew to be one of the most polarizing figures in Boston sports, guiding the team with a robotic style that never quite clicked […]
Big Moon February 27th, 2002 @ 1:19 pm PDT
The Moon will become full on Feb. 27th. It happens every 29.5 days, yet this full Moon is special: It’s the biggest and brightest of the year. … When the Moon is full on Feb. 27th it will be near perigee — close to Earth. As a result the Moon will appear 9% wider than […]

A few nights ago I finally finished reading Just Six Numbers : The Deep Forces That Shape the Universe by Martin J. Rees. I liked it. It was a good read. The author explains pretty much everything you need to know to understand the science of cosmology as it exists today. It was full of […]

Reese’s February 26th, 2002 @ 12:48 am PDT
Y’know … I’ve been thinking. Reese’s Miniatures are better than Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. The chocolate-to-peanut-like-substance ratio is better. I mean … don’t get me wrong: I love Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. I just like the miniature ones better.

Every now and then I get a referral from The International Atomic Energy Agency. Sadly, though, I can never find a link on their site to mine. They have articles on radiation leaks in Georgia and upgrading nuclear security, but nothing about the atomic structure of Gagne. I’ll have to assume that one of my […]
Nude Rowing February 22nd, 2002 @ 5:56 pm PDT
Nude, and loving it – The members of Scotland’s Robert Gordon University Crew team, who, according to captain Andrew Shannon, are training in the buff to “find out what natural assets we have for rowing.” The team, which has braved wintry conditions while preparing for next month’s Aberdeen Universities boat race, consists of four female […]
